Updates for New John Deere Planters Coming in 2022

New for MY 2022 integrated ExactRate Liquid fertilizer tanks on a JD 8RX410 and a JD 1775 NT Planter with 600 gallon Exact Rate Liquid, Planter Tracks and increased capacity bulk seed tanks

John Deere announced several updates to the model year 2022 planter line up.  The Central Fill Tanks (CCS) have 30% more capacity with each tank capable of holding 130 bushels of seed on the larger frame models.  To help increase floatation with the weight of these larger tanks, Deere now offers factory installed tracks on the 1775 NT planter.  They are similar to the Soucy tracks that have been available as a field install option for several years. Customers like their reliability, increased flotation, and minimized yield loss on pinch rows.  Sloan Express sells these after market tracks and you can view more info at their website.

New Factory Installed Planter Tracks help to increase flotation and minimize pinch row yield loss

Exact Rate Integrated Liquid Fertilizer is another enhancement for model year 2022 planters. Now factory installed 600 gallon liquid fertilizer tanks with all of the necessary plumbing are available on newly ordered planters.  Combine this planter liquid tank with the new integrated ExactRate 1000 gallon tanks on an 8RX 410 tractor and you have 1600 gallons of liquid capacity allowing up to 80 acres of liquid fertilizer application at a rate of 20 gallon/acre.

Additional LED lighting packages on the planter allow for greater visibility during night time planting.

View the official product announcement from John Deere here and contact your Sloan Implement salesman before orders open on June 1. Supply of new planters will go quickly and this is the time to lock in the biggest discount of the year.

The next evolution of the John Deere ExactRate™ liquid fertilizer system is here for Model Year 2022. Integrated tanks on the Deere 8RX Tractor plus expanded seed capacity tanks on the planter allow you to cover more acres between fills. With tracks on the tractor and planter, you can distribute weight evenly over a larger surface area to reduce soil compaction. Best of all, the tractor tanks will not get in your way as you get in or out of the tractor cab.

Deere 6125R on Tracks and $500 Data Management Service

by Joe Brunker, Monroe, WI 

It’s starting to feel like winter again in Wisconsin. Snow is in the forecast with 2-4” expected tomorrow. We’re busy working on everyone’s harvest data and getting set-up data cleaned up and ready for spring in Apex. Check out our UPDATED Data Management Service if you do not have Apex software or if you would prefer that we do everything for you. For $500/year it will save you a lot of time to get everything in place before planting season.  You can view more info on our website by clicking here.

Have you taken the time to remove your displays and receivers and put them in a temperature controlled room for the winter? It’s a good idea to do this. Think of your display as a laptop. Would you leave it in the shed all winter collecting condensation every time the temperature increased or decreases dramatically?

6R on Tracks

Mt. Horeb recently sold a 6125R to Northwoods Passage snowmobile club near Tomahawk. This is the club’s second John Deere tractor. When Soucy tracks are added, they claim that they get around the trails and deep snow better than anything else that they have. They are also way more reliable with less downtime and repair expenses for the club. Contact Jeff Stone in Mt Horeb at 800-828-4240 for more information on these tractors.
